Sacramento, Calif. (AP) -- A state agency in charge of environmental regulation has flushed its six-year experiment with waterless urinals.
According to California Environmental Protection Agency spokeswoman Lindsay VanLaningham, the agency has removed all 56 waterless urinals at its 25-story headquarters in downtown Sacramento.
But VanLaningham says CalEPA has received hundreds of complaints over the years about foul odors and wet floors. Maintenance costs also grew high.

The building has had some heating and cooling and leaking issues too .. bet that place smelled real ripe in spots.
And they want us to all use only one sheet of TP, to boot....................
Doesn’t this qualify as a capitol offense in Kalifornia?
Ah yes, a symptom also experienced by the wonderful "if it's yellow, let it mellow; if it's brown, flush it down" ludites who don't know how to properly use a toilet (flush after every usage).
Yeah, that’s what I say about 99% of the libtards’ futile, misguided environmental efforts...PISS ON ‘EM!
“has received hundreds of complaints over the years about foul odors”
Okay enough about the Cali Government Employees. What about the toilets?
Hey, we now have waterless urinals all over Arizona in the form of plastic bottles containing yellow fluid, discarded along the interstate, ever since the state closed the rest stops due to budgest short-falls!
this new hands free, water free lectern/urinal will save the snail darter and really hits the spot.....
Something is odd about this, if the cartridge is replaced at intervals and the janitors spray the inside of the urinal every night, then where are the odors coming from.
What would the urinal have to do with wet floors?
My plumbing supply warehouse has been using these for years, none of us plumbers and plumbing contractors have seen that problem.
I think the maintenance crew is just too locked into old Mexico ways to perform their duties.
Waterless Urinal? Here in Texas we call that a tree.
Ahhh...le pissoir in the sky!
or perhaps a tire.
Wasn’t Al Gore behind these waterless urinals too?
If somebody tied Al Gore to said tree would it still work?
my colleges uber green new tech building has several of those things. They reek and drip and probably cost a fortune to put in. Money which could have been spent on computers which aren’t dell crapware.
Don't know about this case.
But in Chicago they were installed in buildings with copper drain pipes, required by the city's code. The undiluted urine rotted out the pipes and the urine drained directly into the walls and eventually out onto floors.
I’ve noticed that buildings where they have installed these have slowly acquired an outhouse smell that just does not go away
